If you have already done this, than my input would be to
register to sub (probably two months for the CDE to review
your application for this) and then apply at every school
district in the state and sub every day until you get in.
It's all about who you know these days, with a soul-crushing
job market and an economy bent on destroying the middle-class
as quickly as possible. You don't know anyone yet; so once
you're a known equation at several schools and have subbed
ther for a while, you'll start talking to principals and
assistant pricnipals who make the decisions as to who gets
hired and who gets the silent treatment.
Good luck and plan for the long haul with the CDE.
